Glastonbury Festival gears up for 2013
The Glasonbury Festival site
TESS have been safety coordinators at Glastonbury Festival since 2002, helping deliver a consistently safe event come rain or shine. With the recent change in festival management, TESS have become increasingly involved in the event's stategic planning. A TESS Director sits on the Senior Management Team and chairs the Fire Safety, Medical and Crowd Management working groups. We work closely with the Operations Director and the Area Organisers to manage the safe delivery of the huge range of infrastructure, production and entertainment required to create the biggest green-field festival in the world. We are also responsible for contingency planning and manage the event control facility.
TESS also monitor work on site and develop methods for maintaining a high standard of compliance with legislation. As well as preparing and collating a mountain of (electronic) paperwork, we field a team of 30 safety officers and support staff to work throughout the construction and show phases. We have helped draft and deliver comprehensive policies to tackle the myriad of potential safety challenges ranging from Noise at Work to buried gas transmission lines. TESS Director Tim Roberts says "We couldn't wish for a larger or more high-profile event, or a greater opportunity to demonstrate that a co-operative approach to safety management is the only surefire way to achieve results."
